False emails asking for information

Do not reply to any emails asking for account information, even though these emails appear to be sent by me. All emails asking for account information are fake – see email below. Never reply to any email asking for account information, please mark them as junk/spam. I will never ask you for information about your account.
These fake emails seem to be sent from Dirty Down because the person sending them changes the “sent from” address – (easy to do).
The person sending these emails has copied my customers email addresses from the dealers page of my website which is free for the public to view. My website is secure.
Thank you for your patience and understanding in this matter. Please contact me if you have any concerns or questions.
Best regards,

Dear Partner,


We’re currently undergoing an annual bank reconciliation audit and reviewing the company outstanding balances with all our esteem partners, therefore re-concern with us as your records show .

(1) Send us a list of the open invoices and outstanding payments according to what your records show.

(2) Hold on with any payment just to avoid credit error as a result of the ongoing audit with our bank account.

We apologize for any inconvenience at this time and thank you in advance for your cooperation , understanding and considering the above email.

Should you need any further information, please do not hesitate to contact me for further assistance. For all international correspondence, please feel free to write in English, German or French.

NB: With the daily increase in the spread of COVID-19, we urge you to be safe and keep safety all time.

Sincerely yours,
